The Bluethers return to the mics (kind of) to break down the drubbings that the Giants have, respectively, handed out and received in the past two weeks. Given the Giants' now-firm position in the NFL's bottom-of-the-middle, they take a look at developments in Oakland, Arizona, and how teams are increasingly jockeying for their preferred draft placements. Naturally, Rosenhaus and Josh(es) Rosen are also mentioned reverentially before Zach and Willys wrap up with a look ahead to Week 16 in Indianapolis against Andrew Luck and The Other Guys Who Get Paid By the Colts.
CORRECTION: “in medias res” appears to have been first used by Horace, in Ars poetica.
It’s that kind of episode because it was that kind of game. The Bluethers take to the mics to recap the most entertaining and disjointed game of the Giants’ 2018 campaign. They break down the emergence of Aldrick Rosas as a premier kicker, Odell’s touchdowns on the throwing and receiving ends, and how it was possible for Big Blue to nearly lose this game.
With the Giants perched between a wild card spot and a top-tier draft pick, they also look ahead to the final games of the year, and the possibility that the Giants will finish the year, according to them, 7-1.
The Bluethers are back at it to get you up to speed on the Giants' last three "games." After a won bye week and two football victories against other football teams, the Giants are looking increasingly competent at the sport they play and increasingly incompetent at securing a quarterback of the future.
With Thanksgiving and a rematch with the Eagles fast approaching, Zach and Willys also look ahead to what we can expect in Week 12 and whether or not the Giants are, in fact, 2-0. (Spoiler: nope!)
Following a loss that Zach believes to be one of the worst football games he's ever seen, the guys take another look at the now-uncontrolled destiny of the Giants. Is this season looking even worse than last year? Will Secondary Eli finish out the season as Big Blue's starting quarterback? Will Eli Manning continue to be called "Secondary Eli" by Zach and Willys now that Primary Eli plays for the Saints?
Tune in for the answers to these life-defining questions, plus listless words about the meaning of banal dysfunction.
The Giants continue to lose, start to trade players away, and stop pretending that they're competing for a spot in the playoffs. Zach and Willys battle their own exhaustion—both physical and Giants-viewing-related—to bring you some hot talk about the Monday night loss to Atlanta, the Eli Apple and Damon Harrison deals, and what in darnation Jon Gruden is "doing" as "coach" in Oakland.
